Pittsburgh Hospital Negligence Lawyer
Proper and adequate healthcare relies on countless health care workers to function in a proper and professional way to ensure the safety of the ill and injured. Even if doctors and nurses operate at the highest possible standards, the negligence of a staff member in a hospital can lead to serious consequences.
In situations where the action or inaction of a hospital employee causes harm, the hospital is liable for that negligence, and as the injured party you have a right to pursue full and fair compensation for your damages. Our medical malpractice lawyers at Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., can help you protect your rights to justice and financial recovery when emergency room errors and other forms of hospital negligence occur.
When a Hospital Employee Causes Harm
When you enter a hospital, you will most likely not see the countless people on staff who can impact your care. The people who clean the floors, who are in charge of maintenance, who monitor your status, who prepare your food, who help you get around and who protect you, these are all people either directly employed by the hospital or who the hospital has contracted to work in the facility.
The inattention or error of these people can cause a wide range of hazards for patients, including:
- Exposure to hazardous materials
- Bed sores
- Broken bones
Our attorneys deal with a diverse range of medical malpractice and hospital injury cases, and we understand that not all pain suffered is the direct responsibility of a negligent doctor. A whole team of people go into your care, and when one or more links in that chain fail, it could be your family that pays the physical and emotional toll.
Whether because of inadequate equipment, neglect, medication errors, nursing malpractice or improper facility maintenance, we help you hold a hospital responsible for the errors of its employees and seek full and fair financial compensation for your injuries.
